Now something for the audio-technophiles ...

Another item to assist Nigel in his down-sizing ...

I know nothing about microphones, and the only information I have is what you see on the box.

Of course you'll need a cable ...

The hand is not included in this offer!

I gather that the connectors are 'XLR'.
One end (female) connects with the microphone, and I have no equipment that will accommodate the other (male) end.
The cable is about 8 metres long.

There is also another 8 metres-or-so of phono-phono cable with 6.35 mm jacks.

Any reasonable offer considered.

I have recently been pleased to meet with our mutual friend, Nigel.

Those highlighted are already reserved.

They all appear to be in good condition, although some of the cases are damaged, and most have original sleeve notes.

I do not have the time to listen to all of them, I already have some in my own collection and there is some smashing musical material.

If you are interested in buying any of these albums, please contact me:
I am willing to scan and copy sleeve notes if you require detailed information.
